ProCal : Cold Junction Mode Selection During a Calibration (EA001A Thermocouple Adapter)

Modified on Thu, 15 Apr 2021 at 02:48 PM

The EA001A Thermocouple Calibration Adapter connects to the 3000A / 4000 Range of calibrators and offers either :


> Automatic Compensation (using a built in temperature sensor at the point of connection)

> Manual Compensation (manually entered using the calibrator keypad or using ProCal)


To allow ProCal to display the cold junction selection control panel, a test must be set to show a test prompt before the test starts.


To do this follow the steps below :


STEP 1 : Edit the procedure using ProEdit (set the 'before test prompt' to be displayed)


File > Edit an Existing Procedure




Select the procedure to edit by searching for, for example, a model number (or click START SEARCH to view all procedures)




Select the procedure to edit, then click ACCEPT :



Step through the procedure instrument information screens and edit the test lines as shown below :


Click NEXT to continue through to the uncertainty statements and traceable instruments screen



Click NEXT to proceed to the test edit screen



The test edit screen will be displayed - click the TEST LIST button to view all tests :



Select the first temperature test in the list, then click OK :



Edit the prompt settings by clicking on the PROMPTS tab for this first temperature test and ensure it is set to YES -

if not already set, you may like to enter some prompt test such as 'Please check the cold junction value'.



STEP 2 : Run ProCal


ProCal will display the before test prompt for the tests configured (as above) - 

the prompt screen displayed before the test will display the cold junction settings as shown below :



Select the cold junction compensation mode as required.
